          "Down North" Charm

          5 of 5
          Reviewed alot of VRBO rentals before selecting "Maggie's". Loved the charming old farmhouse in the pictures which looked like it "belonged", and was not disappointed when I saw it in person. The pictures do it justice, beautiful shady yard, open deck, comfortable, lived-in, interior. On arrival our hosts had a homemade blueberry (from local wild blueberries!) waiting on us, and a handwritten note on the back of a piece of dried birch bark bidding us welcome to Cape Breton. (Disclaimer is that you have to make sure you arrive in peak blueberry season if you want the berry pie!) We covered alot of territory on our week long trip, mostly on Cape Breton, and Maggie's is a good location from which to venture out in all directions; close to the entrance of Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the gorgeous hikes and views along the Cabot Trail, and an easy day trip to the Fortress at Louisburg to name a few . At the end of each full day we looked forward to returning to the relaxing surroundings at Maggie's. The house and property are clean and well maintained. The hosts could not be more generous and welcoming, and full of information about the area. A couple of the local delicacies we enjoyed (aside from the blueberry pie!) was the seafood chower at Neil's Chowder House in Neil's Cove, and the every present Scotsburn icecream, lots of flavors to choose from! Would definitely recommend a trip to Cape Breton, and a welcoming stay at Maggie's!

          Outstanding Cottage in Beautiful Location

          5 of 5
          I have found that 5 stars are too often given so that the rating starts to lose its meaning. This truly is a 5 star property. It is beautifully designed and built with pine- planked inside walls that lend such charm and interest. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, a rarity and yet so helpful with a larger family or couples traveling together. There's plenty of space for privacy and also for interaction. The furniture is very nice and actually comfortable...as is the King bed (didn't try the others.) We ate all breakfasts and dinners there so really appreciated the high-end appliances (especially the Jenn-Aire duel fuel stove/oven) and the gas grill. And then there's the magnificent view from the house, from the porch, and from the firepit with chairs area right by the water. And the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. And then there's the porch. since the photos on this site were taken, beautiful, high quality couch, chairs and tables are now present...we practically lived on that porch. This truly is one listing that is even better then its photos and write-up. As for the practical matters, Tonia was so easy to work with and very responsive. She provides lots of information about what to do, best places to eat, shop, etc. ahead of time and kindly and quickly answered some additional questions we thought of. The house was immaculate and the linens were of excellent quality. Nothing was missing. And our refundable security deposit check was waiting for us when we got home.

          Very nice house with a great view

          5 of 5
          My wife and I enjoyed the house for a week in July 2014. House is clean and the view is very nice. The caretaker and his wife were very helpful. House includes everything you need for the stay. Cape Breton was beautiful. Be prepared for a lot of driving to sites and activities. The only negatives about the house were the driveway is very rough gravel. Make sure you have a car that is high off the ground. In addition, the beach is right there by the house but difficult to access. There is a very steep drop off and you need to walk through tall grass to get there. Overall loved the house and would stay again.
